My Heaven

My Heaven

Yes, God created Heaven, but He also created her...perhaps Heaven is just a little piece of her.

I have found a place of peace 
Where wonders never seem to cease 
Where light and warmth have joined as one 
And golden dreams of Heaven run 

I gaze at starlight in your eyes 
And all ado of life just dies 
And I am lost within a mist 
Where only grace and love exist 

The angels try to rally me 
But nothing of their light I see 
And gorgeous sounds of harps won't do 
When I have fallen into you 

There was a lovely, promised land 
Divinely crafted by His hand 
But it escapes my memory 
When your blue eyes have set me free 

Oh, please don’t waken me from you,
For all my dreams are finally true
And please don’t shatter paradise
As Heaven’s gates will not suffice.

Hello Matthew! Wow!  You have created a heaven like none other!  You possess such a romantic heart that shines in this one. The beauty of peace from love in this is relaxing.  I want to play a harp and float on a cloud as I hear your words of love's inspiration.  The angels cannot even rally you?  That is some feat!  Simply a heavenly write that flows perfectly with its theme.  You are truly in your element!  Love n Hugs, Cheerie xo

Cheerie, 
Thank you so much. You know you've done OK when you get a 'wow' from the Queen of Romance! I'm so thrilled! I think you already play a harp and float on a cloud. Your angelic persona is just here to help us mortals get through(and you're doing a great job!). Sometimes people we meet illicit wonderful writing(well...as wonderful as mine can be...which is slightly below average. lol). 
Thank you for always being there. 
L&H, 

Matthew.

Hi Matthew, 

Love the image- it certainly compliments your beautiful words. Also, I love the rhyming in this piece. . .great formatting as well. I could tell just by reading your words that you're a man who wears his heart on his sleeve-and you feel deeply (that's a beautiful thing) don't ever change!

Your friend, 
Lauren

Oh Silky, 
Thank you so much! You're a wonderful friend, and person, and it really means a lot to hear such nice things. I don't think I can change(hearts are hard to turn off as you know), so I'm glad you like me that way. Don't you dare change, either! 
Thanks again! 

Matthew.
